Yesterday was Shop Small Saturday, and as we head into the holiday season it’s important to consider supporting small businesses instead of big box corporations.
Etsy and Shopify are great places to find small businesses, as well as connecting with makers and shop owners on Instagram. I opened up a poll on Instagram a little while ago, and here is a list of awesome people with awesome businesses:
mgjbtx – for baby quilts and teething rings
Catalina Home Grown – for fabric home decor items, like mixing bowl covers and potholders
Holly Grove Threads – for handmade quilts, pouches, and bags
Birdie And Dot Fabrics – for modern quilting and sewing fabric
Blue Crab Quilting – will have quilts for sale
Quilt In Progress – for key fobs, pouches, make-up brush rolls, and more
Hoff Mama Company – for quilts, tote bags, burp cloths, and key fobs
Hillside Stitches – for quilt patterns
CynLou Designs – for placemats. custom quilts, and produce bags
Raw Stitches– for tote bags, pouches, coin purses, bowl cozies, and more
These are only a tiny fraction of the Etsy shops available out there. Do you have a shop of your own, or a favourite shop you like to support? Leave a comment below!
